Please rec me some books!

I'm compiling a list of must-reads for the Christmas holidays.

My tastes are pretty wide but I particularly love any book that gets deep inside its character's skins. I love first-person; love seeing the world through one person's eyes. My favourite new(ish) classic = The Secret History. Other books I've loved this year are Andrew Davison's The Gargoyle and Matthew Quick's The Silver Linings Playbook. My most hated book this year = The Time Traveler's Wife.

I can't wait to see what you alll come up with. :o)
